3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup of sugar
2 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. finely grated orange zest
5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted, cooled, plus more for molds
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Using an electric mixer , beat eggs and sugar until pale yellow and thick, about 3-4 minutes. Beat in honey, vanilla, and orange zest. Carefully fold in dry ingredients. Add melted butter; gently fold into the batter. Press plastic wrap directly onto surface of batter; chill for at least 3 hours or can be made 1 day ahead.
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400F. Lightly brush madeleine molds with butter. Drop 1 tablespoon batter into each mold. Bake until golden brown and a tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 8-10 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, invert, and quickly knock madeleines out of pan. Serve with coffee or tea.
